Georgia started the consultations with the UN Security Council permanent members to hold a meeting in connection with the agreement on alliance and integration concluded between Moscow and Sukhumi, Georgian Foreign Minister Tamar Beruchashvili told media Nov. 27.
She said that the Georgian foreign ministry has initiated the consultations with the UN Security Council permanent members November 24.
"This is a workflow that should prompt us to fulfill our task to convene a meeting of the UN Security Council," she said. "We must get used to the fact that this is a process. There are no quick results in this regards. The entire Georgian diplomacy works and will work."
"Everyone must know that there are other important issues" she said. "We must achieve the relevant results."
The minister said that the Georgian diplomacy is effective.
Russia and Georgia's breakaway region of Abkhazia on November 24 signed a treaty of alliance and integration.
On the night of August 8, 2008, military actions were launched on the territory of South Ossetia, Georgia. Later the Russian troops occupied the city and drove back the Georgian military. In late August, Russia recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. In response, Tbilisi broke off diplomatic relations with Moscow and announced two unrecognized republics as occupied territories.
